Borresteijn (4679) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
75cl Bottle, tfs JulienHuxley! Black colour, short-lived brown head. Aroma of hard-roasted malts, ash, currants, blackberries, chocolate, some coffee. Flavour is tart from both the black malts and berries, light fruity, ash, chocolate, bitter finish. Almost full-bodied. Not easy to drink. Struise doesn’t do it for me anymore. Underwhelming, over-priced.

caesar (5120) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Bottled thx to Julien @ Julien’s neighbour is a metalhead according to Rob-tasting, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of lots of blackberries, blackcurrant, roasted malts, spicy yeast esters. Quite bitter in taste mostly from the malts and the berries, quite fruity as well. Heavy on the stomach. Ok stuff, but blackberries dont seem to be my favorite.

JulienHuxley (3054) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Deep black pour with thin brown foam. Aroma is fruity, tons of berry aromas, blackberry, raisin, dark chocolate, light woody aromas. Taste is sweet, winey, very fruity, chocolate-berry mix, light alcohol. Palate is (med)rich and creamy, had thicker but this did the trick. Not the best variant of Black damnation, but still quite nice.
